Importance of Data Backups

Few businesses fail to realise or understand the importance of data backups, however, once all the right contingencies are in place it is normally only in the event of a problem that some businesses put these plans into action.

In the case of data contingency plans, mirrored data systems are great to back up and prevent data loss but what would happen if data placed onto the system is overwritten by mistake with invalid data or the data is deleted?  Ultimately, these problems can occur through human error, but they are real risks that must be identified and managed.

One solution is to employ the services of an automated, online backup service.  This gives several benefits, not least of which is that the backups replace unreliable and time consuming outdated methods.  It also has the added benefit that all data is stored offsite, which in the event of disaster recovery, is of paramount importance.

For larger business with hundreds of Gigabytes of data, this may sound expensive, however, it is generally not as expensive as you may have thought and when compared to the value of your business, it is invaluable.
